This is the extent of my Halloween decorations this year. I’m even too lazy to paint a face on my pumpkins with a sharpie. But doesn’t the novelty six-pack of pumpkin-infused beer add so much character?
Speaking of pumpkins, the Husband and I had another disagreement this weekend that could potentially harm the innocence of our future children.
He we aim to be cost-conscious individuals who stay away from pumpkin patches and Christmas tree lots. Instead, we buy our holiday goods at grocery stores where they’re much cheaper. The gorgeous pumpkins we bought this year cost a total of $4 from Ralphs (note: we did get $2 off the large pumpkin for buying the beer – see, cost conscious).
I have no problem with our current method, but in the future when we have kids, I want us to frolic among the patches as a family and take lots of photos and make lots of memories. I can’t imagine bundling up my little ones to drive them over to the local Rite Aid to pick out a tree.
The Husband doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with making our children aware of capitalism in the marketplace before they start kindergarten. According to him, if it’s cheaper to buy at Ralphs, then we’ll be making memories among the produce section.
Are there any other wives out there who can emphatize?
